Thank you for attending our AmCham Business and Civic Leadership Awards and Gala
I would like to personally thank you for attending our AmCham Business and Civic Leadership Awards and Gala that was held recently. Your attendance was extremely important as we value your support. The event honoured and celebrated businesses, individuals and nonprofit organizations that have been driving and achieving economic and social progress in Jamaica through ethical leadership, stewardship, and community building activities. I thank you wholeheartedly for being a part of this occasion.
This year’s Business and Civic Leadership Awards recognized the invaluable efforts of Jamaican trail blazers such as Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, Joseph Matalon and Father Ho Lung who earned the coveted Lifetime Achievement Award. The AmCham team was also pleased to have American Investor Wesley R. Edens, CEO of newest member Fortress as our keynote speaker.
There are exciting times ahead as we build on our highest membership in our 28 year existence and the launch of “Vision 2018”:
